With these introductory vox-pops, we’d like to invite on-air and off-air DJs to include spoken word in their mixes & pass on the messages aired here mixed with local stories from where ever they are; the present play-list tells a story; yet it's only one of many that could be told...
We welcome interested on-line listeners to join in our conversations as we speak. Do get in touch if our words strike a common cord.
Your comments, questions, remixes will feed the fire!
the struggle continues!
thank you for listening!
radio continental drift
a broad casting house in the bag of a drifter
out to here unheard voices
a branch of the growing networks of sound workers,
audio artists, radio communities, and the street corner academies of listening and broadcasting
around the world
radio is happening
when people loiter in public places
the air is free!
